RIAA Website Wiped Clean

Thanks to an SQL injection, the RIAA website took a beating from hackers earlier today. According to TorrentFreak, a slow processing SQL query was posted on Reddit. Reddit user’s responded by trying to kill the RIAA server but as they were doing so, someone ended up wiping the entire site’s database.

Since the article was published, the RIAA has restored their website but they apparently have yet to fix the issue. Check out that TorrentFreak article for pictures of what the website looked like earlier in the day. My favorite is the error messages RIAA SUCKS … XSS ftw?

Don’t Blog As Administrator

Display Name As Seen In WordPress

Donncha has posted a WordPress blogging tip which in my opinion, should be common sense by now. Don’t blog as administrator or at least don’t let your display name show up on your blog as administrator. Not only does it send a red flag to potential hackers but it also looks pretty unprofessional too see a bunch of posts on a blog posted by administrator.

To alleviate this problem, log in to your WordPress admin panel and click on USERS. Edit your usernames profile and change the display name to something besides administrator, for example, your real name.
